New York City
Imagine being 12 and having soldiers occupying your house and land, with only your cat to tell your secrets. Kneehigh Theatre, who wowed audiences at the Wallis with Brief Encounter, return with 946, which was originally produced by the Wallis’ new artistic director Paul Crewes.
Kneehigh’s signature sorcery of music, puppetry and foolishness transports us to Slapton Sands, England, in 1944. Based on the beloved book by War Horse author Michael Morpurgo, 946 explodes everything we thought we knew about the D-Day landings in this tender tale of love and war.
Performances begin: November 9, 2023
